Chart of the Day – Research in Motion (Downward Motion, That Is)

This chart begins January 1, 2008 and goes through today’s current price…

Compare that to Apple’s chart over the same time period:

What happened to Research in Motion?

I think…

1. They got complacent. They didn’t take Apple’s iPhone seriously.

2. They didn’t think ahead. Every phone they have come up with seemed to be playing catch up to every other phone.

3. The Playbook was a joke.

I still like BlackBerry. I have a Torch. Other than a few glitches, it has been a good phone. I’m resisting the iPhone because EVERYONE HAS ONE and I like to be different (even if it means I have an inferior phone).
